Excellant post.
That one pic brings Reallity.

Does make me wonder how we here in the US would be 'handled' if/when something like this happens here.

While we have fortunately been spared natural disasters in the 100,000+ death category so far, we have had large disasters such as the Johnstown flood and the Galveston hurricane -- and we cleaned them up and went on.

The horror and shock gives way, and it becomes a problem that we can overcome... and we will. This terrible event, which is large, may well be dwarfed by another disaster's death toll.

In particular, we have quite a bit of seismically active ground and we could have a terrible earthquake at any time on either coast, or in the middle of the country -- and our preparations for another series like the terrible ones in 1811-1812 are woefully inadequate. Even another Charleston would be horrendous (though these days at least there is far less nuclear material about the Holy City than 20 years ago.)

In first pair, right, caption says taken January 29, 2004. Should that be December 29, 2004?

These aerial views are somewhat misleading. They are taken at such a distance that the actual damages are hard to realize.

The one large photo posted in many threads that shows the bodies among the debris is probably the most telling of the devastation and deaths.

Good morning Dear!

Somehow, I feel as if I need to be in mourning.
This is so devastating.......... and I know there is life to be lived, but I am sad for the families of these islands.

You managed to put into words exactly how I'm feeling. Like everyone else, I've been so wrapped up in the coverage and the pictures and the enormous scope of it all, that I haven't been able to think about anything else, let alone celebrate the New Year. Though the circumstances are very different from 9/11, the gut wrenching feelings in the aftermath are very much the same.

Thank you for posting ALL the pictures. Warning of graphics is more than due (thank you admin) for pictures of this nature. Pictures like this, will probably only be found in a place such as FR because the cold rawness and and unimaginable was captured with a camera lens. The reality, is almost unconceivable. It would be something like the day after Armageddon. I pray that the thoughts of the photographer are the along that line. Life is not all 8 x 10 glossy pic's, sometimes we need access to reality and truth, no matter how ugly.

If you were not prepared for the pictures, do not blame the poster, appropriate warning has been issued.

One picture of one small section of one beach.

Expound that to hundreds of beaches and thousands of miles of shorelines impacted.

[The mind can hardly comprehend the level of devastation.]

I saw someone remark how these countries have no natural barriers anymore; hence much of the devastation. Used to be that the coral reefs, mango trees and sand slowed down waves. Now it's open season on all the buildings that have been built to get that close up view of the ocean.

CNN has been getting an avalanche of emails indicating they should not be showing the horrors. They are standing by their theory that, if not shown, this would soon be forgotten.

Just as they did with 9/11 and the Americans falling from the towers. (/sarcasm)

I think Europeans saw them on tv but we Americans were "spared". Real reason: they didn't want us to get angry.

I don't pretend to know all there is to know about disasters like this and 9/11. But I do know God is on The Throne and the devil is on the prowl, seeking whom he may devour. 1 Peter 5:8.

The Scriptures also say that the thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy. John 10:10 But Jesus says, He came that we might have life, and that, more abundantly.
Satan (the devil) is THE thief.

Our blaming God for evil does no good to any one. Reading the Scriptures though, gives inner strength and peace, and a confidence in His love.
This is what we have to cling to.

Just know that we as humans, are but a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. James 4:14 & Heb. 9:27
We are here.........................then we aren't.

I pray for the people to be comforted.

God Bless us all.

As kids we did the "dead man's float". Face down and very still for as long as you held your breath.

BTW (and excuse the blunt language) but if disposal is delayed much longer those bodies will fall apart when moved.

Bandeh Aceh looks like it was the hardest hit place.

From "Worldreligions.co.uk/islam.htm ...
"...Islam`s most sacred sites are Mecca and Medina on the Red Sea coast of Saudi Arabia, Jerusalem, from where belief holds the Prophet made his miraculous night journey into Heaven, Karbala in present-day Iraq, and Bandeh Aceh in Sumatra..."

Terrible, horrible loss. But that's only a small portion of the devestation and loss of life. I'm praying for their souls and their survivors.

"I don't pretend to know all there is to know about disasters like this and 9/11."

Same here. But 9/11 wasn't a "natural" disaster and there were real, very evil people we could blame. You'd think since this current disaster occurred naturally, everyone would be satisfied with just blaming mother nature but some have to make the leap into blaming our God of Life. I'll never understand why bad things happen to good people - but I can live with that fact even though it's terribly hard sometimes.
